Movie Musical Monday: The Phantom of the Opera

This post could also be titled: The Phantom of the Opera: Gerard Butler wasn’t a terrible Phantom. I said it. I don’t think Gerard Butler did a terrible job as The Phantom. Like, in comparison, he’s miles ahead of Russell Crowe in Les Miserables and they’re both ahead of Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia! Yes,... Continue Reading →

64. Network

A television network cynically exploits a deranged former anchor's ravings and revelations about the news media for its own profit. Network, having been released in 1976, is 42 years old. And, yet, somehow it manages to fit in tremendously well in this day and age. It managed to predict the future, and it’s unbelievably eerie.... Continue Reading →

Movie Musical Monday: Grease

Let’s tackle the ultimate movie musical classic, Grease, shall we? As much as I want to hate this musical (and trust me, I want to hate it, a lot), I just can’t. The songs are too catchy, the dancing is wonderful, and the one-liners are constant. HOWEVER, like a lot of people, I do have... Continue Reading →

Look, her performance is great.... Continue Reading →

If you haven't seen it yet, here: Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer  So, the only reason I didn't write anything about it earlier was because I needed to watch it several more times throughout the day to really get my feelings straight. I have come to this conclusion:... Continue Reading →

67. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

A bitter, aging couple, with the help of alcohol, use a young couple to fuel anguish and emotional pain towards each other. The main thing I have to say about Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is that it’s a lot to take in. By the time the film ends, you’re astonished by the kind of... Continue Reading →
